("A touch of Road Rage" or "Stolen?"
Two cars were waiting at a
stoplight.. The light turned green, but the man in the front car didn't
notice it. A woman in the car behind him is watching traffic pass around
them. The woman begins pounding on her steering wheel and yelling at the
man to move. The man doesn't move.
The woman is going ballistic inside her car, ranting and raving at the
man, pounding on her steering wheel and dash and the light turns yellow.
The woman begins to blow the car horn, flips him off, and scream curses
at the man. The man, hearing the commotion, looks up, sees the yellow
light and accelerates through the intersection just as the light turns
The woman is beside herself, screaming in frustration as she misses her
chance to get through the intersection. As she is still in mid-rant she
hears a tap on her window and looks up into the barrel of a gun held by
a very serious looking policeman.
The police officer tells her to shut off her car while keeping both
hands in sight. She complies, speechless at what is happening. After she
shuts off the engine, the police officer orders her to exit her car with
her hands up. She gets out of the car and he orders her to turn and
place her hands on her car. She turns, places her hands on the car roof
and quickly is cuffed and hustled into the patrol car. She is too
bewildered by the chain of events to ask any questions and is driven to
the police station where she is fingerprinted, photographed, searched,
booked and placed in a cell.
After a couple of hours, a police officer approaches the cell and opens
the door for her. She is escorted back to the booking desk where the
original officer is waiting with her personal effects.
He hands her the bag containing her things, and says, "I'm really sorry
for this mistake. But you see, I pulled up behind your car while you
were blowing your horn, flipping that guy off, and cussing a blue streak
at the car in front of you, and then I noticed the "Choose Life" license
plate holder, the "What Would Jesus Do" and "Follow Me to Sunday School"
bumper stickers, and the chrome plated Christian fish emblem on the
trunk, so naturally I assumed you had stolen the car."
